Sam Van Hallgren’s review published on Letterboxd:
I like Ferrell and he mostly delivers the funny here, but for this movie to work not just as a comedy but as a romantic comedy, it really needed a better partner for McAdams—who is, no surprise, great as ever. Any scene between the two of them turns the movie into an SNL sketch and the movie wants to be more. (Not much more, but at least a little bit more.) Let’s just go ahead and imagine it was Adam Driver in the Ferrell part instead and I think you get my drift.
Not that Driver needs to spend his time in something like this, but if we had a driver cloning machine, one of the Driver clones would have been perfect for this.
